The environment is a crucial part of early years teaching. The environment is there to enable children to practise and apply their learning and to deepen their knowledge and understanding through problem solving and deep, shared experiences.
Too often the early years classroom stays the same throughout the year, not responding to learning and the needs of the children. This means children do not get enough opportunities to try out their learning, to demonstrate and deepen the Characteristics of Effective Learning and to learn from others.
This course will enable you to critically evaluate your early years environment and how it is used and will facilitate thinking around the use of space, timetabling of play, the development of memory and planning to ensure gaps in learning are supported by a strong and well thought out environment.
You will have chance to consider the use of context and purpose to develop learning and to think about the promotion of basic skills throughout the environment.
